Deja Trimble better known by her stage name Dej Loaf is from Detroit, Michigan. She began her career as a hip hop artist in 2011; her stage name is a shortened version of her first name, “Deja”, and “loafer”, as she took a keen interest in shoes growing up.
She released her first mixtape Just Do It. in 2012 and attracted the attention of fellow Detroit rapper SAYITAINTTONE, who later signed her to his label IBGM (I Been Gettin’ Money) and his management team. The track “Try Me”, produced by DDS and released as a single in July 2014, went viral after Canadian recording artist Drake quoted lyrics from the song in an Instagram post.
DeJ Loaf signed to Columbia Records in October and shortly afterwards released the mixtape Sell Sole.
